Stumbled upon this pic on the web awhile back.
Possibly taken in Sweden? Cool...

I love those counter-steering shots! How cool to see a snow shot!

Some photos from Possu's thread about his Stella Alpina 2005 trip. Anyone know more about this bike?

Ooo... look at me! I'm cheap and couldn't purchase a new screen (mine was totally yellow... think... looking out a piss bottle yellow ) so I painted it with that Fusion paint for plastic. I did the prep right (thanks Creeper) so I think she'll be good for many miles.

Reading the rules, it looks like I could ship two boxes of parts. One would be the chassis, the other just the engine. Both look like they'd be parts under the law. Ship one box to a friend's house, if you're that paranoid.

I could reassemble them and have it certified as a homebuilt. I know of one mid-80's XRV750L that came in like this.

IIRC, this is how Moble M12s are imported - as a kit car.

Any holes in this theory?

iswooley, I can tell you where the fairing comes from. That part appears to be a Simpson Detour fairing. If I ever get mine from the f@@ckers I'll post a better installed pic.

Replaced the shock boots with some custom made (by Lizard Skins) neoprene boots for only $20! They velcro on/off so checking seals is a snap.

Hi Greg,
good to see, it's still running!

I'm still in conflict selling my AT ...



Shall I ? It's still in good condition but this Touratech TT39 is mouthwatering as well ...




Cheers

Dirk
